    Well, it's something else from the usual stuff. :)

    This was second time I race on this track. The first was on project cars 2 last Sunday. I didn't have time to practice than about 15 laps before the qual, and setup was watkings glen setup with more wing. I was a little surprised when I found myself in a pole position. My stragedy was push hard at the start, and make some gap to Carl and Michal, and then just control the speed and it worked. Also grats to Roberto and Toni! See you next time.

    I was fighting for the first position, you had a blue flag, you had to stay away and instead you closed, for me a normal race accident,

    It's not like the LMP fights are more important than the GTE fights. It's the overtaking car that has the higher responsibility for a safe pass.

    Very true! Being in a faster class doesn't give you special rights to track position. We don't have to get out of their way, they have to get around us safely.

    I do not ask for any special rights, what time do you think I have committed a misconduct on a pilot, this will present a complaint and the race commission will evaluate whether to penalize me or not, I do not want any controversy, I did not make any maneuver on purpose, it simply was an evaluation error, I also suffered a contact from an LMP3 with damage to my car, but I didn't point the finger at anyone.

    Qualy: Put in my PB and took 5th in class.
    Race: First few laps I couldn't settle into a rhythm and had Jens all over me. Made a mistake and he got passed. From then on I was all over the back of his Beemer but lap after lap I couldn't get past. What was worst we were only doing 1:59's. I allowed a gap to form in the hope the pace would increase but it didn't. Like yesterday I saw a gap in the traffic and took and early pitstop for fuel. Unlike yesterday I came out just as a Vette thundered past. Took me a couple of laps to get past then I could start putting in some fast laps doing some 1:57's. When the pitstops worked themselves out I was ahead of Jens by 17 seconds. Then I had a half spin into T1 this toasted the tyres. A few laps later they were all in the yellow with half the race still to go. My lap times were back in the 1:59's and I was 7 seconds ahead of Jens. The next time I looked Andy was behind me and the gap was 11 seconds. I could maintain the gap with the odd 1:58 lap but then an off road excursion and the gap came down to 7 seconds. Put my head down and tried to get back into the low 1:59's but the car felt like it was driving on ice. Had to keep pushing if I was to fend off Andy. With a few laps left Andy was now 14 seconds away so he must have had an incident. I could now relax and drop the pace a bit. P5 was another great result for me. Love this track and the Porker is a fantastic car to drive. I think the best sounding car on the grid :)

    Well done to all of the winners :) and to all of the podiums :)
    Well done to those who finished :) and commiserations to those that didn't :(

    Just a note : One of the basic rules of online racing in no chat during the qualy/race. There was chat in qualy and at the end of the race. If you have finished the race please consider those who are still racing. You can use the info on your screen to see that people are still racing. Thanks :)

    Looking forward to the next round. See you all there :)

    The final results didn't process correctly. I will ask Mark Hightree to look at them tonight and correct it.
    (the times and positions are correct, but the final listing in correct order isn't)

    Andrew Williams, however I apologize for the contact, I assessed that you had the blue flag, when I saw you widen I entered, I didn't think you would have resumed the ideal trajectory, I'm sorry I made you a contact, the next Once I assess the situation better, I repeat, I didn't do it wrong, I apologize again

    That was quite a boring race for me with a car which didn't want to steer correctly. I don't understand why, my setup was OK two days ago, and on race day no way to make the rear move in corners, as if they were stuck on track.
    Not enough pace to follow the leaders and no one else to fight with. P3 in the end, but it was more fun the day before with the Audi GT3, just to say.

    I don't know if it suits your drivingstyle, but here is my Brno LMP3 racesetup. Should be good as a baseline setup. You only have to change the aero package and wings where needed:

    Hi Eric,
    after the track is loaded, I go in :
    and I move the wheel right and left.
    If I don't do this, often my wheel doesn't steer correctly.
    Strangely it happen with LMP2 and GT3, never with McLaren M23 !

    Hope it can help

    That's what I told to myself after the first race (and even during!) LMP2 in multi-class is very complicated, and I was not sure to already have the level for.
    Watkins Glen is a fast track so it went pretty well, despite a lot of stress (and fun).
    But Brno, I did not feel it and when I got off the track by overtaking Michal, I preferred to give up, because I took no pleasure and I was too afraid to cause an accident.
    Some GTE / P3 keep their trajectory and others move away when you arrive, so it's not easy to anticipate.
    it will still be a good experience but not sure to continue, depend on the circuits.
    thank you

    The more you do it, the better you get. Every race you learn more and become better. Keep at it, you'll see.

    If it worked well in offline, check your internet settings too.

    @Eric Cline
    Before I upgraded pc, I had a lot of microstutter in VR.
    I used a little program called 'OculusTrayTool'.
    Ran that before starting game, and in the settings of OTT, I locked the FPS to 45 (Default AWS Mode) and that helped a lot with the stutters.

    Without doing this, Oculus tries to display 90fps, but when it is struggling, it automatically drops down to 45fps, then back up to 90fps etc

    Personally, I couldn't see any graphical difference with it locked to 45fps

    If you don't have Oculus, ignore the above.
